  • Make sure you get enough sleep and rest. If you don't take the time needed for your body and mind to recover, even normal activities may feel burdensome. Also, remember to exercise and stay in connection with your friends.
  • As part of your training schedule, add small pauses into the program. Also, making people laugh and having fun together even for a brief moment makes people relax and gives some extra energy.
  • When you feel having more things to do than you have time to deliver, it is worth the effort to write down the most important tasks and to prioritize only the most crucial ones. Larger goals become easier to accomplish once you have divided them into smaller subgoals.
  • Learn to aks for and to give help to others. Share your thoughts with your friends and colleagues and ask help when you need it. This helps in clarifying your thoughts and focussing on your priorities. Remember that helping others is rewarding and contributes to your own happiness.  

Managing stress helps to manage your wellbeing and performance. That makes stress management skills worth developing.
